Home Sweet ‘shabby’ Home

Some homes are quiet, polished, neat. . .
But some I know are far more sweet.

Where tiny smudges on the wall. . .
Tell of fingers dear and small.

Where toys are sometimes strewn about. . .
And doors are banging in and out.

Where little children play and sing,
And laughter's often heard to ring...

The home I love is filled with noise
Of happy little girls, plus one little boy!

I enjoyed painting a couple of shabby home sets last week. I’m usually such a precise painter, so painting these freehand was a test for my psyche. . . but in the end I loved their quirky little features, less than perfect dimensions, lopsided doors and twisted wire chimneys.

I’ll be sharing my village of shabby little houses with my link party friends this week.
